I'm stuck in a spot with mine. Z Speed hd csc and z1 stage 1 clutch. I've adjusted the push rod out far enough that it bottoms out in the master instead of on the pedal assembly when pushing to get all the air out of the master. It gravity bleeds fine, and I've pushed about 750ml of fluid thru it with no bubbles with my wife working the pedal. I also cracked the hard line at the master, and got just a bit of air out of it. I get enough pressure that the clutch disengages fine to get into gear, it's just at the very end of the stroke, and after a LOT of sponginess in the pedal. I bled in all sorts of positions of adjustment on the clutch rod, and both having the pedal pushed then bleeding, and having my wife put pressure on the pedal and push it down as it bled. I don't think I'm a moron and this isn't my first go around bleeding stuff so I guess I can mostly eliminate operator error.

The two things I've read so far are don't use a vacuum bleeder, and if you reach where it won't bleed you need a new master. I had previously bled the clutch about every oil change so there's no debris in the lines (i dont think) and didn't have a stock CSC failure, so why would I need a new master? It was just fine a few days ago before I tore apart everything. Also why not use a vacuum bleeder? Will it suck air in the seals?
Any other suggestions? Drive it and let the air work out? Flip the beyotch upside down and shake it? Live with it(aaaargh)? New master?
